Formed originally 20 years ago in Jedburgh the line up has changed little over the years, however, Gordon and Ian have recently been joined by Gary Forrest who is an exciting young accordion player from Jedburgh. Garys 'blue sky' approach to the accordion superbly compliments Ian and Gordons traditional songs and fiddling style. Both Ian and Gordon have been recently involved in exciting recording projects including the twelve volume CD set 'Complete Songs of Robert Burns ' by Linn records, both as singers and musicians. Ians second vocals were featured on Jims Reids recent release 'Yont the Tay ' which was nominated for best album at the 'Scots Trad Music Awards 2005' and both have been asked to make contributions to the forthcoming 'Songs of Robert Tannahill' along with many of Scotland's favorite musicians and singers.
Fiddlers Leaps recent album 'Tams Auld Luv Song' was recorded at Peirhouse studios in Edinburgh and produced by Dr Fred Freeman who is the driving force behind the Complete songs of Robert Burns series and a rising star in the Scottish Music scene having produced several albums for well known artists and Greentrax records. The album features the original line up of Ian Anderson on vocals and assorted stringed things. Gordon Kelly on vocals with Jimmy Nagle on Fiddle and Gary Forrest on Accordion with a wee guest spot from Ian Lowthian.
